 Partner Tag
 Jay King  -  page 20
 

Definition:
 

From a couple: Face partner and pass by each other right shoulders. Finishes with couples back to back. Note that Partner Tag can't be called from a wave formation because the two adjacent dancers at each end of the wave are not called "partners"--we need a new term for these dancers like "neighbors."

Peel, Turn And Cross - modification of Peel, Turn And Peel

From columns: Lead dancers Peel Off, thet other six step forward (single file circulate) where the lead and trailing dancer of these six do a Trade while the center two (of each column of three) arm turn one quarter and do a diagonal "Step Thru" to form waves. Finishes in parallel waves. (Will Orlich 1974)

 Tag Right/Out, Left/In
 Jay King  -  page 247
 

Definition:
 

Tag Right/Out, Left/In etc. -- Bill Davis, Menlo Park, Cal. 1975

From regular or two faced lines or waves: Do a Tag the Line and the lead dancers face according to the first call (e.g., Right) and the trailers face according to the second call (e.g., Out). The four calls Right, Out, Left, In may be used in appropriate doublet combinations.

Tag Zig In/Out; Zag In/Out -- suggestion by Will Orlich, Bradenton, Fla. 1975

From regular lines, two faced lines or waves: Do a Tag the Line and the lead dancers take the first call (Zig) as the trailers take the second call (In/Out).

COMMENT: The latter suggestion (Zig In, Zag Out, etc.) causes less confusion. Time will tell.

 Tag The Line
 Jay King  -  page 20
 

Definition:
 

From four people in line regardless of who faces out and who faces in: All "Face down the Line" (face the center of the line or wave) and pass by two dancers passing right shoulders (double pass thru). Finishes with two files of two back to back (completed double pass thru formation). NOTE: Tag the Line is not a double pass thru--it always required that dancers first change their facing direction by a quarter and then do a double pass thru. When Tag the Line is followed by the terms Right, Left, In, Out or Zig Zag, dancers who have finished the Tag movement individually make quarter turns as the call indicates. Right means all turn 1/4 right; Left means all turn 1/4 left; In means all turn 1/4 to face the center of the set; Out means all turn 1/4 to put their backs to the center of the set; Zig Zag means the lead dancer turns right and the trailing dancer turns left.

 Tag The Line 1/4; 1/2; 3/4
 Jay King  -  page 200
 

Definition:
 

Tag the Line is by Will Orlich, Bradenton, Fla.; Tag the Line Half is by John Steckman, Ellwood City, Pa.; Tag the Line 3/4 is by Bob Dawson, Sarasota, Fla. I don't know who's associated with Tag the Line One Quarter. All "Tags" go back to Tag The Centers by Holman Hudspeth, Detroit, Mich.

From lines, waves or two-faced lines (including three and one lines): All face down the line. Tag the Line One Quarter--leads step forward until shoulder to shoulder in the center. Half Tag The Line--All walk forward, leads pass by one couple and stop when shoulder to shoulder with trailers from the other side (in a wave without joining hands unless so directed). Tag The Line Three Quarters--All walk forward, leads pass thru two couples and trailers stop when shoulder to shoulder in the center with the trailers from the other side (in a wave without joining hands unless so directed).
